Uber Chameleon complete (maybe)

The generic SL-Buttonmen system has been completed. Well, as far as I can tell. Testing will probably reveal a few errors, but I expect them to be minor. In the image below you can see my Tick persona using the system, which now has standard 12-sided green dice. Message me in world and I'll send you one.

SL Buttonmen update

As expected the end of the Christmas break meant a reduced amount of time in SL. A painfully reduced amount of time, since I'd like nothing better than to jump on in and make some games.

A few months ago I contacted cheapass games (the makers of RL Buttonmen), and although they were happy for me to make an SL version, there were copyright issues surrounding the imagery they use. This led me to take a different direction and instead of releasing specific buttons I started working on a generic system.

The new button (codenamed: Uber Chameleon) is almost finished, and can use any dice combination the player should want. The current imagery is shown below:

I am hopefull that it will be completed within the next few weeks (given that it would probably only take an hour or so of in-world time).
